70 Minutes

October 11–24, 2020

Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Misho Antadze’s The Harvest (2019), on view from Sunday, October 11 through Saturday, October 24, 2020.

Ostensibly a seventy-minute study of the cryptocurrency boom in Georgia, The Harvest also charts the cartography, ecology, and history of technology via the vineyard region of Kakheti—a nexus point where agriculture, modern technological infrastructure, and natural wilderness converge. Specifically focusing on the growth of massive computer banks for mining Bitcoin, the film explores the impact that new technologies are having on this peripheral area of Europe, in which the boundaries between the material and virtual worlds are frequently blurred. The Harvest is directed by Misho Antadze in collaboration with cinematographer Alexander Girav and producers Natia Guliashvili and Melissa Demetras.

The Harvest is presented here as one of two films in Extraction by Different Means, the fifth of six programs in the online film and discussion series Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental Memory programmed by Lukas Brasiskis for e-flux Video & Film.

Ecology After Nature runs from August 14 through November 8, 2020. The films in Part Five will screen for two weeks, and subsequent parts will follow bi-weekly, with new films screened every other Sunday.
